Paradise Pup

Review by: ayersian

When Chicago food authority ChiTownDiner recommends Roadfood in his own town, you know it’s going to be incredible. In this uniquely Chicago place, people wait up to an hour to secure some of the best burgers and hot dogs in the city.

Wisconsin’s Merkts Cheddar Cheese Spread is used liberally in two magnificent ways: the Merkts Cheddar Burger and 3 Layer Fries. The one-third-pound burger is cooked to order—pink if you like—and the tangy Merkts, spread on a pillowy bakery bun, melts unctuously onto the warm patty. Add long-sautéed, caramelized sweet onions for the ultimate treat. The fries are crinkle-cuts topped with Merkts, sour cream, and crumbled bacon. The sharp cheddar really makes a difference.

The Chicago dog — with relish, onions, tomatoes, sport peppers, celery salt, and a pickle spear — is a classic example of the city’s way with wieners and is right up there with hot dogs from the likes of Superdawg and Poochie’s.

Milkshakes are rich, creamy, and bursting with genuine flavor—nothing artificial here—and the raspberry option is an absolute must-try.

Paradise Pup truly is heaven on a bun.
